pdf  Geological structure and outlook of oil and gas production of Miocene accumulations (Black Sea northwestern part)
New geological, geophysical and geochemical data obtained in the course of exploration activity in the licensed blocks of PJSC "Oil Company" LUKOIL "formed the basis for this study of the Miocene hydrocarbon system in the Black Sea northwestern part. The reservoir rocks are associated with submarine cones of removal. The traps are predicted as combined types (including elements of structural, tectonic and lithological factors) or lithological types. The Neogene reservoir rocks are formed by basin floor and slope fans. 3D basin modelling allowed prognosis of hydrocarbon type that was confirmed by exploration wells, drilled at the newly discovered structures.

Keywords: Miocene hydrocarbon system, flyout cone, combined traps, lithological traps, Black Sea northwestern part.

pdf  Interpretation of tectonic structure of northwestern offshore of the Black Sea for evaluation of petroleum potential prospects
The main challenge for regions with complex tectonics and structure where exploration activities are associated with high risk for geometrization of possible promising objects is to obtain a consistent structural interpretation of geological and geophysical data. A comprehensive structural-tectonic interpretation of geological structure of the north-western part of the Black Sea is presented. Such interpretation includes not only mapping of layers and faults, but also performing of paleoreconstructions and checking the balance of a conceptual model. The main tectonic and stratigraphic stages of development of the northwestern part of the Black Sea are determined; the risks associated with the structural interpretation are reduced significantly by creating of geometrically consistent structural-tectonic model, the age of deformations is clarified and estimated shortening / stretching of the area for one or another stage of geological evolution are calculated.

Key words: structural interpretation, the Black Sea, tectonics, inversion, paleoreconstruction, structure development.
